Student & Graduate Reviews

3.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2020

Mercer University college of Pharmacy is more than just a 4-year pharmacy program, what excited me the most about the program was the emphasis on community service in which we are required to participate in various community service events in the underserved communities of Atlanta as well as the diversity of the student body. I am a sole believer that being exposed to people that doesn't look like yourself is pivotal when entering corporate America or simply interacting with patients.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Mercer University prides itself of serving the undeserved and provides scholarships to those students who agree to stay in the state of Georgia after graduation. It is a good school with good values.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2018

I am currently an online student at Mercer University pursuing my Master's in Public Health. Thus far, this program had been a great experience. I work full time as a fellow at the CDC, so having a good work/education balance is vital. Professors are very organized and post assignments well in advance, therefore making it easy to plan ahead. Follow up is also great; whenever I have a question about an assignment or do not understand something, I am able to call or email my professors for almost immediate correspondence. The material covered is also very interesting and applicable to what I hope to be doing in my career. If you are a full time worker hoping to advance your education in public health, this program and school is definitely for you!

Degree: Religious Studies
Graduation Year: 2007

In a world divided by race, religion, sexual orientation, economic status, and political association, I discovered a place of Shalom. Mercer University, not only provided quality scholarship, it also became a safe place for mutual appreciation of all people. The ability to dialogue with students, faculty and guests of a myriad of backgrounds was so edifying. The respect afforded to the diversity of humanity was and will always be one of the greatest lessons in my life. On my first day of class in the Master's of Divinity program, my professor asked me to join him for a cup of coffee. During our coffee conversation, my professor explained how he had reviewed my application and thought I was an interesting student, especially considering it had been over a decade between my bachelor degree and master's degree. We discussed the curriculum in general terms but spent most of our time talking about our current culture with some hint about a vision for the future. My first day at Mercer University was not unique, and I would later discover that our coffee conversation was the culture of this place of higher education. I graduated in May of 2007, and now I am back at Mercer University pursuing a doctoral degree. In between May 2007 and now, Mercer even allowed me to return for one semester as an Adjunct Professor. Our family is so inextricably tied to Mercer University. I have three children in college simultaneously, while I am pursuing a doctoral degree. My youngest daughter is an excellent student and was accepted by many prestigious universities. When it came time for her to select a school, she chose Mercer University as well. She is in the process of completing her freshman year. My wife and I are so excited she selected this quality school for her educational pursuits. In my honest and humble opinion, Mercer University is not only Georgia's best kept secret, it is America's best kept secret. Located about an hour south of Atlanta, in the heart of Middle Georgia, lies this jewel of a school (undergraduate/main campus). The Atlanta campus is home to many of the graduate programs. Mercer University is an excellent place to explore the depths of curriculum, but more importantly it is a place to explore the depths of what it means to be human in our very diverse world.

Mercer University, Master's Public Health program, is a great program. Professors are dedicated to their students and shares expertise knowledge, as many of them have years experiences with careers in public health. This University values community service, as service hours are required a part of the curriculum. Professors are very resourceful in finding opportunities for students such as internships, fellowships or other public health related programs.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2017

I am currently starting the evening MBA program Mercer as a working adult or non-traditional student. I completed my Ed.S in School Psychology and am looking to switch career paths. Applying to a graduate program (Mercer University) after being out of school for ten years, has been an easy one. All of the staff are extremely helpful, so many things can be done online, and the Atlanta campus is small enough that you feel like family once you arrive there. I really appreciate that. I plan to use a MBA to get a position in training or policy change within a company or a government position. I am looking forward to furthering my education and learning a new set of tools to help people.
4.4 out of 5.0
Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2017

Mercer is a great University in Atlanta, GA, with great opportunities for those who work full time yet still want to obtain advanced degrees. The class sizes are small and intimate where you can really develop a deep knowledge of the subject matter. Professors are also very encouraging and willing to help you succeed, not only in class, but also in your career field of choice.
